Name one other year that has had this many great comedy films. You can't. 1988 was a huge year for comedies, both good and bad.
Yes, we were punished with movies like "Earth Girls Are Easy," "High Spirits," "Johnny Be Good," "License to Drive," "Young Einstein," "Hot to Trot," "Moving," "Feds," "Twins," "Big Top Pee-Wee," "Crocodile Dundee 2," "Caddyshack 2," "Short Circuit 2," and "Police Academy 5."
But... well... ok, maybe it was also the worst year for comedies.
Whatever. So, it's a numbers game. And that means there was bound to be good stuff. And the good stuff was really, really good. So, without further ado, here are the 14 classic comedy films of 1988, the best year for comedies!
(WAIT! There actually is some further ado. I wanted to send my apologies to "Scrooged," "Big Business" and "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka." They're nostalgic favorites of mine, but let's be real. They ain't that good. Ok, on with the show...)
This is my own personal list of films that, in my opinion, should have won the Academy Award for Best Picture. It is in no way an official list, and it reflects my opinion, and my opinion only. Enjoy!
These are the greatest American civil war movies ever made. The list is based on the scores from the critics as well as on the scores of the fans. Reference web sites: IMDB.com, Metacritic, Rottentomatoes.
Of the movies that I have seen, these are the ones that I have deduced to be the best in terms of: artistic merit, entertainment value, movie-making finesse, ingenuity, and overall cinematic achievement.
Movies I have watched the most times.
Movies I saw at just the right time in my life.
Movies that molded my sense of humor.
Movies I can never be objective about again.
Each holds a special place in my heart.
